Once my appeals are exhausted, how long does the lawsuit take?
Once a complaint is filed it typically takes approximately 12 to 18 months to get a judgment. Many federal jurisdictions require an early mediation or settlement conference to see if the case can settle. Mediation or a settlement conference is often scheduled within 4-6 months after a lawsuit is filed. If the case doesn’t settle and is decided by the judge, the court’s judgment can be appealed by either party, in which case the matter then proceeds to the appellate court, and usually takes another 18-24 months for a decision on the appeal.
